The Labour Party (LP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to convene a socio-economic summit for Nigerians to proffer solution to the current political and economic problems facing the nation.

This is contained in a statement signed by the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji AbdulKadir Abdusalam, and made available to newsmen in Ibadan on Saturday.

The statement advised the president to organise the summit to allow the participation of all and sundry to engender a sustainable democracy.

It called for proactive intervention of the Buhari-led administration to lessen the economic hardship Nigerians were now witnessing.

The statement also advised the government to implement programmes and policies that would not make ``Nigerians feel oppressed, isolated, manipulated, disoriented, dejected, and disjointed.’’

It added that purposeful contributions of well meaning Nigerians, Labour Party, Civil Societies and others should be considered and embraced.

The statement further advised Buhari to adhere strictly to the ethics of good governance, participatory democracy in line with the sacred laws of the land.

‎It, however, cautioned the government against all acts that could silence the opposition, saying such would put the country under siege.
